Supported by PMN, PLN is not expected to increase electricity tariffs in 2022


Suara.com – It is hoped that the national electricity provider, PT PLN (Persero) will not increase the basic electricity tariff (TDL) in 2022 after receiving State Capital Participation (PMN).

“PLN is given a PMN, meaning that throughout 2022 there should be no increase in electricity rates, especially for non-subsidized groups,” said Director of CELIOS (Center of Economic and Law Studies) Bhima Yudhistira, when confirmed by WartaEkonomi, Saturday (1/1/2022).

He continued, PMN could be an excuse for PLN not to rush in increasing the TDL in 2022 to prevent inflation from disrupting the national economic recovery program.

“PMN is also a form so that PLN does not rush to increase electricity rates to prevent inflation from being too high and it could pose a risk to national economic recovery if electricity prices are expensive,” he said.

PNM must also be closely monitored so that PLN’s performance can have a positive performance and be able to reduce dependence on debt financing.

“Then the most important thing is also related to the supervisory factor so that pln’s performance can be more positive, it can suppress the dependence on debt financing and can also carry out bureaucratic reform so that its management can be more professional,” he said.

Previously, it was reported that the State Electricity Company (Persero) (PLN) received state capital participation (PMN) for 2022 of IDR 5 trillion.

PMN is part of the state assignment to PLN to build electricity infrastructure to support village electricity programs so that it is hoped to increase the electrification ratio in Indonesia.
